I don't think the Amercian Red Cross would want a shirt with a large skull on it. But, I could be wrong.

roundedges

why would you have a skull?
i think the last thing the red cross wants to promote would be a huge dead person

ceaston

Poopy - What would make you put a skull on a Red Cross Shirt???
Why?

CDK

Snowblinded,roundewdedges and ceaston,
The design is for the Threadless community and is my interpretation of hope, humanity and compassion. If I was designing a shirt FOR The American Red Cross, I would be able to incorporate the Red Cross logo and be able to use the words" The American Red Cross".
So please, critique on design and not who you think is going to wear it.

i think it'd be cool if the girl actually was drawn in a style more similar to the skull. the skull looks cool. the rainbow looks cool. the girl looks like a cartoon.

very cool! Nice distress work and good use of colours and negative space. Pretty original way of using a rainbow. The only thing I'm not fond of is the crosses, but I'll take those in because it's so damn good. 5!

It's a cool design, but I am of the opinion that the skull it gratuitous.

nice design, but it's so cryptic.

I think its missing those important elements of any redcross sub, doves, teddybears, children, Oh damn, some hands and ambulances.

I'm quite confused as to how in the hell a skull as a metaphor represents anything that the redcross wants to do. Saying you designed this for the threadless community is a cop out, as if it wasnt for the redcross then you would not have sub it for this contest. The shirts are going to sold at their store and money from each sale goes to them. The link is quite clear. TO me, this is metaphorically bankrupt. Its a good design, nicely done but should have been placed into the main contest. I am less convinced of your ability to meld the two different drawing styles as well.

I like it but differnt colors and id probably wear it

Fucking gorgeous illustrative work and shredded very nicely. Not a single change needed. 5. Ah, I love the critiques here...they crack me up. You know, some people just tend to forget that design is subjective. You can feel them getting so defensive in their cubicles. CDK...if this is your interpretation, run with it, man!
